Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...In the Heights makes it difficult to hold its shortcomings against it. The ensemble soars when singing, and Miranda’s bright musical talent is worth getting to know. (Luckily for us, he seems in it for the long haul.) And as the mayor pointed out, this is an American saga that will touch all of us who have chased dreams while yearning to preserve a sense of home."

Variety - Highly Recommended

"...As summer treats go, Tony-winner “In the Heights” is very like the piragua sno-cone popular among the tuner’s heat-besieged barrio residents: It’s crisp and refreshing, drenched in thick syrup and gets pretty mushy by the end. With the immensely likable composer-lyricist Lin-Manuel Miranda reprising his original turn as philosophical bodega owner Usnavi, the touring cast re-creates the Gotham hit’s sultry multicultural charms. Edgy it ain’t, but the energy is irresistible."

LA Weekly - Somewhat Recommended

"...The exploitation isn’t so much of the people from Washington Heights, even if the producers gave away tickets to them — the musical could just as easily be coined as an homage. Stories like this don’t exploit ethnicity, they exploit the depths of anguish that shape the lives of everybody who’s struggling to get by in this tempestuous economy. The fake resolutions and sentimental answers that this musical serves up offer neither veracity nor the kind of hope any intelligent person could believe in."

"...This Tony-winning musical makes its L.A. bow in an exhilarating touring edition that pulsates with showstopping song-and-dance numbers while raising one's spirits with its funny and poignant characters, coping with the challenges of life in the barrio of New York's Washington Heights."

Broadway World - Highly Recommended

"...Once in a while, one of the most fortunate things about west coast debuts of touring shows is when a Broadway hit finally transfers here, bringing with it some of the original stars that helped launch it. For those able to catch the Los Angeles premiere of the 2008 Tony® Award-winner for Best Musical IN THE HEIGHTS (now playing at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood through June 25), the pleasant surprise is the presence of the show’s original lead actor, who also happens to be the man who conceived the hit musical, as well as write the show’s music and lyrics."

The Hollywood Reporter - Highly Recommended

"...The large and talented national touring show of the Tony-winning “In the Heights” provides a brightly colored, relentlessly energetic and singable musical soap opera about the Dominican-American community of Washington Heights, in northern Manhattan. It is a celebration of immigrant, ethnic life as seen through a vivid Technicolor, love-happy, multilingual lens. It also is homogenized to please a large audience, but it has enough truth to make people believe."

Laurence Vittes - Highly Recommended

"...The libretto by Quiara Alegría Hudes weaves the separate elements in the neighborhood to create a moment suspended in time that becomes a fairy tale by Abuela Claudia’s winning the lottery and entrusting the money to Usnavi. Aided by inventive direction by Thomas Kael (the many locations co-exist on the plaza created by Anna Louizos), the sure-fire components are moved along by Miranda’s eclectic hip-hop rhythms and restless choreography by Andy Blandenbuehler, making this musical a welcome addition to the list of enduring plays presenting the early 21st century. Best of all, this high-spirited cast exudes a joie de vivre that you’ll find catching."

Examiner - Highly Recommended

"...One suspects the story might get a bit grungier if the talk is true and “In The Heights” is destined to become a film. Part of me hopes it won’t. As much as Miranda’s work should be immortalized _ and as fortunate as Angelenos are that he’s in town _ the power of “In the Heights” will be watered down if it’s brought to celluloid. How is a street full of lit cell phones or the impromptu celebration that is “Carnival de Bario” going to translate? Still, I suspect if someone can find a way to enliven a medium, that person might well be Mr. Lin-Manuel Miranda. He’s certainly scaled impressive “Heights” in the past."
